What do berries perfumes smell like?
Be it the lusciously juicy flavor of blueberries, the tart sweetness of strawberries, or the long, lingering aftertaste of cranberries – we all have our little berry obsession. And while our favorite flavor is certainly a matter of personal preference, there’s no denying that these tiny indulgences pack a powerful punch when it comes to scent. So, what do they actually smell like?
Berries-scented perfumes typically smell fresh and fruity, reminiscent of ripe berries picked straight from the vine. They’re sweet, and often lean toward the ‘gourmand’ spectrum of scents with vanilla and candy-like notes. Depending on the type of berry used, some berry perfumes may also have a spicy or tart note. Most berry fragrances in the market today are refreshing and light, making them ideal companions for summer or spring.
Gone are the days of pungent, overwhelmingly sweet berry perfumes. Today, these round, little beauties have finally entered their true olfactory form – sweet but not overly so, utterly elegant but equally effortless to wear. Take the popular Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million Eau de Parfum for women, for instance. Fresh and feminine, this berries fragrance starts with a powerful raspberry-floral fusion, followed by honey-drenched patchouli and warm amber. It’s a luxurious, seductive mix that uses berry to full effect, consistently reaching into and awakening our carnal centers.
In fact, this berry-floral pairing appears rather frequently, as also evidenced in Marc Jacobs’ Dot Eau de Parfum. This tropical blend is intensely aromatic and sweet, bursting with notes of red berries, pitahaya (dragon fruit), honeysuckle, jasmine, and orange blossom. At its base, warm vanilla, driftwood, and musk maintain a delicate balance to keep the sweetness under control. An all-year-round fragrance for the young woman looking for a bit of lively cheer in her life.
You’ll also find berry in Mugler’s Angel Eau de Parfum. Intense, ethereal, and absolutely unique, there’s no denying that this berry-infused scent is a foodie’s dream – so delicious you might as well spray it on your lips (but please don’t). You’ll find a strong patchouli note at the center of Angel’s composition, nicely accentuated with notes of chocolate, candy, and fresh berries. Unmistakably bold and decadent, this isn’t a berries fragrance for the light-hearted – no matter their infatuation with the fruit.
